The Tigers absolutely stole Jarrod Washburn from the Mariners today. Luke French (though he is showing promise as a starter) was not much to give up for a pitcher like Washburn.

At this point the Tigers still need to add a bat to the lineup. Three outfielder's come to mind: Adam Dunn, Aubrey Huff, and Alex Rios. Anyone of these gentlemen would really help the Tiger's stalled offense. The Tiger's will be doing a lot of "Platooning" around the outfield and possibly at third so an additional outfielder who can swing the stick this year just may do the trick.

Ok Mr. Dombrowski you have until 4PM!
